Rebeccca Hale

“You Were Made for This sparks the courage inside of you to listen to your maternal, intuitive knowing that we often suppress because of the expectations of society, family, schools and ourselves. Rebecca vulnerably shares her successes and challenges in navigating the journey of raising a child on the autism spectrum and she shares with beautiful humility how her son helped her peel away her fears, beliefs and labels. This book really allowed me to reflect, reframe and celebrate my own journey with my son.”  Rebecca Hale- pediatric physical therapist. http://www.turtlehouz.com/
